June 05, 2020 | UCHRI The Fire This Time: Race at Boiling Point

On Friday, June 05, 2020 David Theo Goldberg and UCHRI gathered scholars to think differently together about the structural conditions and explosive events shattering our times. In a wide-ranging conversation emerging out of the national and international protests in response to yet another spate of anti-Black police violence, these leading critical thinkers engaged questions about intersectional and international struggle, the militarization of the border, racial capitalism, the feminist dimension of new social justice movements, the unsustainability of the nation-state, the power of the arts as a rallying force for imagining and sustaining solidarities, and much more.
